On planet Earth humans seem to have trouble to recognise their own kind. Instead of enjoying each other’s uniqueness and ingenuity, they seem to be afraid of each other and blind to the fact that they all pretty much have the same dreams and fears. Dreams that could become reality if they recognised each other as who they are. Fears they could overcome by simply having a drink together.

The big trouble is that the people of planet Earth have heaped so many misconceptions and destructive practices on themselves, and on each other, that they will need time to untangle all the mess they and their ancestors created.

But at the end of that road, they can celebrate each other’s and their own courage, ingenuity, inventiveness and wisdom — and discover what the world holds for them if they shake off outdated perceptions.

Humans are the most remarkable creatures on planet Earth. What they have achieved goes far beyond imagination. Why shouldn’t they be able to figure out how to do better, and then reshape their world, eliminating everything that has made them and their planet sick?

Dignity should not be a right, it should be a matter of course for every human being.

Humans tend to thrive when they are free to think, explore and create.

It is the more remarkable that humans created an economic system and many political systems which condemn the majority of the human race to dependence and dullness.

The potentials that could be unearthed if humans remembered that freedom is part of who they are, these potentials are vast.
